After a long absence, the Dig It! Royal Oak Organic Garden held its first workshop of the year!
The Alembic Distillation workshop was held on Saturday, March 10.
The workshop was an opportunity to learn about distilling therapeutic oils and those for oil burners, cooking, baking, flavouring or for making herbal teas and hydrosols. As well as Buddha’s hand, attendees also got to work with Lemon verbena.
“Lemon verbena as a hydrosol is useful in icings, tea and flavouring water. If there is enough interest we would welcome another workshop later in the year,” Vicky explains.
